Constant Temps May Support Health
By Tom Herrin
The search for solutions to any kind of health issue can be something that may become stressful as well as disappointing. As people seek a way to improve upon their current situation, they may find themselves going through a series of failures. Whether it is a major or minor problem, it can prove extremely discouraging. Many studies focus on what may seem to be unlikely solutions. Some of these focus on ordinary things that may make quite a bit of difference. One of these is temperature. In studies, it has been found that there may be a temperature range that can make many ordinary things easier.
Set the Temp for Sleep
So many people have problems with sleep that the sale of products to help resolve it is a big market. Spending lots of sleepless nights can cause people to be unproductive at work, constantly fatigued, and struggling to stay awake while doing things such as driving. Some who study it have found that there is a temperature range at which better sleep may occur. This is said to be from 65-72 degrees. It seems that cooler temps may help to have a positive influence on Rapid Eye Movement which is a critical part of the sleep cycle.
Losing Weight Could Be Easier
Anyone who has tried to lose weight is well aware of how difficult it can be. No matter what they do, it may seem that they can't find the right combination. Some who have studied this have determined that the optimal temperature range for losing weight is 64-67 degrees. If someone really feels brave, it is believed that those who shiver from the cold may increase the rate at which the body burns calories. It is thought that they may burn them as much as five times their normal rate.
Make the Most of the Opportunities
I feel that if I can adjust my thermostat and manage my health more efficiently, I will be so much better off. I have spent countless hours trying to get back to sleep after waking up in the middle of the night. When I was young, it seemed that I slept the best when the weather was cold and I slept with a heavy quilt as covers. We did not have forced air or heat, so we had to rely on whatever we could use. The result was a much better night's sleep.
